American Bill Zachary has finished the 7 summits with his summit of Everest
Kilimanjaro, normal route, July 1990: Everyone else who was on the mountain
that night pushed too hard, so Myer's Cave was filled with listless people
passing around bottles of Tylenol and Vitamin I. As a result, I was first to
the top by default that morning, not seeing anyone beyond the cave--other than
my mandatory Tanzanian guide--until we were nearly back to Gilman's Point.
Aconcagua, normal route,
mid-January 1991: All 11 members of our Mountain Travel team summitted. Head
guide was Ricardo Torres-Nava; other members were Beth Baker, Sid Bronstein,
Dan Bronstein, James Chandler, Tommy Cary, Lowell Hill, Paul Morrow, Wayne
Oldenburg, Dan Warren, and yours truly.
Denali, normal route, late
June (24th?) 1993: First try in '92 with Mountain Trip (Head guide Stacey
Yamaguchi) failed due to the horrible weather for which '92 was noted.
However, 3 of us formed the nucleus of the '93 team of 7 friends and
acquaintances, all of whom eventually summitted during a beautiful 3-day
window. The members were Mike Beers, Joe Byrnes, Marlowe Eldridge, Dave
Kennedy, John Parulis, Rick Peters, and myself. We met Stacey coming down
while we were on the way up.
Elbrus, normal route, August
1994: An REI Adventures team got only 4* of our 12 members to the top. This
expedition--5 women and 7 guys--was more notable for the champagne dinners and
disco dancing than for its climbing exploits. Everyone but me rode a tractor
to Pustakov Rocks on summit day!! The members were Len Burns*, Sandy Caldwell,
Mig Farina*, Eric Larsen, Mike McKnight, Susan McKnight, Janet Pease, Norm
Pease*, Laurie Renny, Pat Uebel, and me*.
Kosciuszko, both upper road
and the maintenance roads on Threbo ski slopes, early Jan 2001: A 1-1/2 hour
hike seemed too easy, so I went up the ski slope in 2 hours the next day.
Dozens of people were around, but have no clue what their names were.
Vinson, normal route,
mid-January (16th) 2003: Climbed with an 8-member Mountain Madness team (Head
guide Morris Kittleman), all of whom summitted (eventually). In addition to
Morris and me, members were guide Tom Milne plus Chris Boggins, Darrel
Lindgren, Mike Turley, Pete Youngwerth, and Bill Cunningham.
Everest, normal route
(Hillary-Tenzing), mid-May (17th) 2004:
Part of an Asian Trekking
group (Team leader Apa Sherpa) that put everyone on the summit who was able to
reach the South Col. It was a special honor to share a tent with Apa and to
climb the first few steps with him. Other members on the May 17 climb were Bob
Huygh, Pasang Tshering, Tshering Thondu, Nikos Magitsis, Lhakpa, Jangmu, Willy
Troch, Pemba Tshering, Pasang Tharke, and Mingma.
